Looks Cheap and Poor Quality

Advantages: Big sized basket underneath, storage tray for drinks etc
Disadvantages: where do i start!
With my little one sleeping at his grandparents sometimes on a weekly basis, it made sense to get a pram for when he is there as packing up our pram in the car boot for the sake of one night became tedious and really irritating.
The Hauk Sport was on offer in Asda for £25, my mother in law purchased it and it is now used for when my son sleeps at their (his grandparents) house. Not one to sound ungrateful, i didn't complain. After all, i had no problem with it as i wasn't pushing it and as long as my sons comfy that is my main priority.
When the in-laws went away on holiday we was left with the duty of feeding there cat, it was at this point i used the pram. I will start with the positives, as although i wouldn't buy this product myself it is fit for purpose and fine if you are on a low budget as it is a lot better then most other low budget prams. The seating area for the baby is well padded, the bar across the front is great for making sure baby is secure- especially when sat up. It has a really big basket underneath, which you can store plenty of shopping in. There is also a tray on the handle bar which has various compartments for drinks and a compartment that i presume is for small change etc.
Now for the negatives, my son was 14 months old and the pram was extremely hard to push or manoeuvre. To turn the wheels i couldn't simply turn the pram, i had to lift it using the bars so the back wheels lifted from the ground- then turn it. The frame itself is very thin, it does look kind of tacky too- i know i sound awful saying this as it was bought for my son, but I'm not ungrateful to the fact they bought him a pram. Just this particular pram doesn't meet the basic standards of a pram for everyday use. The design and colours aren't too bad, blue isn't the colour pram i would personally choose but i can't complain considering. One big irritation i had when i used this buggy was it had no foot muff, i allso understand there is no option to purchase a matching one seperate- i hate just using blankets as my little boy is forever kicking them off, but i had no choice on this occasion.
Overall i would not recommend this pram to anyone else, its difficult to use and poorly made. If you however need a temporary pram and use it for the same purpose we do then its not bad value considering.
Summary: Cheap and nasty
